Re: Seen a gritter? Don't worry...

Round this area as well.

Re: Use of ZF 8-speed auto gearbox (BMW and other makes)

Yep coasting has existed on a lot of autos for several years.

Re: Let's Talk More

There's a saying someone posted, I think on here: 'courtesy causes confusion'. Being pro-social (random acts of kindness) has its place for making the world a better place. However, being helpful shouldn't p1$$ other people off in the process :) Hmm, I have a relation who insists on slowing, and fl...

Re: Let's Talk More

The trouble with the headlight flash by bikes, and this applies to cars now with all day lights, is that very often where a flash may be useful there is a sleeping policeman or other traffic calming, or a need to brake firmly. This can lead to what looks like a flash but isn't. I therefore try to av...

Re: Let's Talk More

I'm one of those who will leave a gap, if safe, in queuing traffic, but it is the other drivers responsibility to decide if it is safe for them to make the move. It's the same with NOT waving peds across. They have to take responsibility for their own safety. So, I'll make it easier for others, if s...

Re: Roads they been a changin'

Re: Roads they been a changin'

I entirely agree with you Mark, my experience also. My question was to GTR1400MAN as I am puzzled as to what he does do for a very short stop if not the footbrake and does he do anything different depending on whether the auto has stop start or not. I’ve understood that for very short stops the gen...
